Bribery in international business

OECD Business Integrity Roundtable


Global and regional roundtables


The OECD Business Integrity Roundtable is a forum to identify, exchange and promote good practices on anti-corruption compliance among private sector, government, law enforcement and civil society representatives from OECD Member and non-Member countries.

Organised by the OECD Working Group on Bribery as part of its outreach efforts, the Roundtables have featured global, regional and thematic sessions focused on, for example, business integrity trends, incentives and engagement with SMEs.

The 2023-24 Roundtables focus on promoting the implementation of business integrity aspects of the 2021 Anti-Bribery Recommendation, and continue to explore ways to identify and document cross-country business integrity trends.

Government incentives and assessments for promoting corporate anti-corruption compliance: Expert meeting and public-private dialogue

22 - 23 May 2023

These events were held under the auspices of the Global Initiative to Galvanize the Private Sector as Partners to Combat Corruption, which aims to mobilise the private sector as critical actors in the fight against corruption, help level the playing field and promote a rules-based international business climate. With the support of the US Department of State, the Initiative builds on the OECD’s multidisciplinary approach to promoting anti-corruption, trust and integrity, operationalises international standards and takes forward a core commitment from the United States Strategy on Countering Corruption.

The events were organised jointly with the UNODC under its Global Action for Business Integrity project. The expert discussion took a first step toward identifying good practices that governments can use to incentivise corporate compliance efforts more effectively, and the public-private dialogue provided a forum to discuss the business perspective on government incentives for anti-corruption compliance and the challenges faced when authorities seek to award incentives based on corporate compliance efforts.
